-night meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. she's due to meet tomorrow with the leader of the palestinian authority in the west bank, president mahmood abbas and then she will fly to cairo to meet with mohamed morsi. she won't meet with hamas which the u.s. government regards as a terrorist organization. netanyahu met last hour with secretary of state ban ki-moon. the two met with reporters only moments ago. >> unfortunately, mr. secretary, hamas and islamic jihad and the other terrorist groups do not share your concern about our civilian casualties or about civilian casualties at all. >> that was the israeli prime minister meeting with the u.s. secretary-general ban ki-moon. earlier today israel put an all-out ground assault of gaza on hold,age i'm quoting, to give limited time for a diplomatic solution. egypt sees an end to the gaza conflict, that's see. president morsi says, the travesty of the israeli aggression on ga did will end in a few hours ap christiane amanpour is here and watching what's going on. the diplomacy is intense right now but it's by no means a don

or supported. netanyahu knows that international p.r. efforts, that there is a limit to how much people can take. we saw some of the pictures. why now do you think this is happening with hamas? >> bob: a couple of reasons. hamas is testing the obama administration and testing the muslim brotherhood egypt now the center of the negotiations for diplomacy, of which they know nothing about. the other two is turkey and qatar. it's interesting that israel's allies around the world, only two come out and said in defense of israel. britain and obama and the united states. the rest of them are holding back. one of the reasons is they don't want to see invasion of gaza like israel did the last time where a lot of people died including a lot of israelis. i think everything will be done to try to keep that off the table. and see if they can get a negotiated settlement. it will do away with barricades on gaza with a long-term commitment by gaza not to launch missiles. >> dana: andrea, that issue of a long-term situation or solving it quickly. hamas and netanyahu said we don't want a short-term solution.
states. president obama and prime minister netanyahu talked today and i know the prime minister called the president. i want to show you the headlines the day after the election. these were around the world. netanyahu rushes to repair damage with obama. that was one. perceived tilt towards romney israeli leader must mend relationship with obama. in israel the prime minister is taking heat for a perceived support of romney. i guess the big question is can the relationship be mended? >> there was nothing to mend, erin. president obama has said that he has spent more hours in conversation with prime minister netanyahu than with any other foreign leader. they've had about ten meetings. i've been present at all those meetings. they've been friendly and open and very constructive. we have a lot of common challenges facing us in the middle east whether getting the palestinians back to the negotiating table or again preventing that iranian regime from getting nuclear capabilities. prime minister of israel and president of the united states are committed together to meeting those challenges, to
prime minister benjamin netanyahu in a press conference yesterday as bombings continued between israel and hamas in gaza. today the conflict is rapidly escalating. a hamas rocket struck north of jerusalem this morning and rockets landed in southern tel aviv for the first time in 20 years. israel is now amassing troops along the border with gaza and put 30,000 army reservist troops on alert. egyptian prime minister herb m candill visited and had this to say -- on behalf of the egyptian government and president we have come to stand with the palestinians. palestine is the heart of the arab and muslim world and the body is not healthy while the heart is sick. israel agreed to a brief cease-fire as the egyptian prime minister visited gaza that collapsed after they accused hamas of resuming attacks. at least 21 palestinians and three israeli citizens have been killed in the bombings. joining the panel is jamie rubin, former assistant secretary of state and spokesman for the state department during the clinton administration. thanks for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> help us get a li
the president and the israeli president benjamin netanyahu and do you feel and believe that the prime minister has faith in how the u.s. has responded so far and the president's response in saying that they do have a right the defend themselves. >> well, i have with been in the room with secretary clinton and prime minister netanyahu and with president clinton and not president obama and netanyahu. it is a issue of timing. you have netanyahu coming up with his own election in early 2013, and how he handles this can have implications going in one direction or another. his relationship with president obama is already having a political effect, and it could be a campaign issue. but nonetheless, as prime minister netanyahu and president obama has enforced that no leader of any country can tolerate this kind of missile firings that put an entire population at risk. >> why is hamas trying to exert itself like this? what do they have to gain by doing this? >> well, hamas is in a political tug of war with fatah and wants to demonstrate the relevance. fatah is going to the united nations in the near da
from their joint asia trip and sent her to jerusalem for an urgent meeting with ben ja man netanyahu. this morning clinton flew from jerusalem to the west bank to meet with mahmoud abbas, president of the palestinian authority, before returning to jerusalem with additional talks with netanyahu. secretary clinton is in cairo where she met with president mohamed morsi of egypt who's mediating the discussions. as secretary clinton carries the official white house message there is new attention being paid to the president's strategic options in the region. "the washington post" writes president obama's decision to send his top diplomat on an emergency middle east peace making mission tuesday marked an administration shift to a more active vist role in the region's affairs and offered clues to how he may use the political elbow room afforded by a second term. beyond a cease-fire agreement, the president could try to throw his political clout behind a larger, long-term solution here. so far, no deal has materialized between israel and gaza. also, a bus bombing in tel aviv could push both s
possibility here that a re-elects president, potentially re-elected prime minister, netanyahu in the alex wagnelect january, can find a way back to negotiating process otherwise this just reinforces the current stagnation that we have within the middle east peace process. >> in terms of how this affects the men people, on the ground you have a long history here, what is your sense of this moment for palestine? >> well, the war in gaza empowered hamas more than ever. remember a year ago, israel negotiated with hamas, empowering hamas while abbas was submitting his first bid a year ago to the security council israel was negotiating with hamas and releasing 1,000 prisoners. every israeli policy, so far since netanyahu was in office four years has been to negotiate whether clearly or under the table with hamas and empower them and ignore abu mazen. hoping a year ago he will have some kind of recognition, some kind of settlement, political settlement. we're talking about the man that always believed in a peace process that was pro-peace process since 1993 when signed. yes, he was desperate but
